I've lurked and posted a little already, but I might as well introduce myself. Try to be polite and whatnot. I am first an artist who happens to love to read. I found myself drawing specifc characters and creating stories for them. That combined with a specific taste in books and never being able to find what I want lead me to try my hand at writing my own. I love fantasy, while leaning towards urban fantasy a lot. So far I'm in the planning stages of my first story. I love to talk about stories and I try to stay away from story types I dislike completely so I don't end up bad mouthing something that is completely a matter of taste. Other than that... I just love to talk.
